Keys to Transformative Dialogue
Responding to the current social and political context affecting schools and communities across the country, we have launched our newest program for educators and administrators -  Keys to Transformative Dialogue. This program equips participants to immediately and effectively engage with students, colleagues, parents and community members in courageous conversations, addressing inequity and discrimination. Participants will receive hands-on tools to apply in their daily interactions, in all areas of their lives.

Educator's Equity Workshop
